You don’t have to be controlled by difficult people!

You are the only one truly committed to your happiness. No one else really cares if you’re happy. It’s like they’re on a mission to make you miserable! There’s always that one person—that one who hijacks our emotions. The one who thrives on drama.

But since we can’t fix him (or her) to make everything better, then we have to make choices about us and how we react to their craziness.

Mike Bechtle is a communications expert who will show you how to stop being a victim of other people’s insanity. With commonsense wisdom and proactive advice you can  put into practice immediately, Bechtle gives you a proven strategy to handle crazy people—and to stay sane while doing it!

Stress happens. You don’t plan for things that just happen. Someone lies and you are unexpectedly fired from your job, kicked out of school for a related degree, and all of a sudden your dream life is shot full of holes. They are crazy. You have the drama and the stress to deal with.  Or, your daughter is late coming home from her outing with her friends. You call, but get voice mail. You go from irritation to panic and calling the police to look for her, fearing the worst, when she strolls through the door as if nothing had happened. She had a flat tire, her phone was dead… all valid excuses. But you have the drama of your emotions.  Or maybe you wrote a book and someone gave it a nasty review and you’re all stressed out about it. How do you handle that?

Mr. Bechtle has some wise advice. Talk to the ones who make you crazy about the situation. Change what you can. And the very last thing to do, if everything else has failed—walk away. Set your boundaries. Control your reactions. It’s okay. You can do this.  We all deal with crazy people. We have lives filled with drama. We pray for peace for a season. After all, we don’t need high blood pressure. PEOPLE CAN’T DRIVE YOU CRAZY IF YOU DON’T GIVE THEM THE KEYS will give you the steps you can take to handle the stress. Recommended. $12.99. 203 pages.
